We have a PC in the office to which I have been granted to install Ubunto 9.04 on it. It has an intel graphic card Q45/Q43 Express Chipset.

I will proceed with the installation in a 1-3 weeks but I am expecting to have problems related to the graphic card not being seen or not configured ok.

Can you tell me how to configure it and what would its xorg.conf look like ?

Until I do the installation, I can use the Live-CD to test out your suggestions or do queries.

running from the live-cd 9.04, I see that the xorg.conf did not detect the intel graphic card. But then again, should it detect it when simply running the live-cd ? Again, this is to find out what to do to make sure the intel video card will be configured once I install Ubuntu 9.04 (in 1-2 weeks once I get the ok).

...
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
